1 DISTANCE LEARNING AND SOCIAL MEDIA IN STUDY PROCESS Vilmantė Kumpikaitė-Valiūnienė School of Economics and Business, Lithuania Yaşar University, March 4, 2015, Izmir- Turkey

2 DISTANCE EDUCATION Distance education activities have a history of more than 200 years. However in nowadays they are inevitably linked with modern learning surroundings. Information technologies and virtual learning environment play the most important role in distance learning.

3 DISTANCE LEARNING Distance learning is especially useful for adults who need to develop their skills or change their profession (Krivickiene, 1999), because it presents the following possibilities: Allows to work and study at the same time; No need to move from a living place and work; Promotes the choice of the field of studies; Permits to choose learning time, pace and scale; Does not make a learner dependable on the teacher; Present an immediate feedback to the learner.

4 Advantages Possibility to get engaged into lifelong learning and develop irrespective of time and place. Possibility to learn at a learner s pace and according to his/her abilities and demands. Learning expenses are reduced. Teaching material is easier understood using multiple terrains. More rapid innovations and achievements dissemination. Cooperation among different institutions in managing studies, common projects, research. ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF DISTANCE LEARNING Disadvantages Studies based on contemporary technologies require considerable investments. Creation of modern means is expenditure consuming. Not all students afford to use a computer and the Internet. There can arise technological incompatibility. Teachers positive approach to distance education, adequate knowledge and qualification is a must. New technologies require computer literacy, foreign languages. Lack of social contacts.

5 MASSIVE OPEN ONLINE COURSE MOOC is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. These courses can be fully taken online. They are 'open' in the sense that they can be accessed by anyone anywhere as long as you have an internet connection, and that they are free of charge. And they are called 'massive' because generally they go for large target groups. MOOCs are a very recent phenomenon, initiated in the US in the second half of 2011 at a number of top universities and meanwhile expanding rapidly. Some call it a silent revolution in higher education. In any case it is difficult to deny the impact and consequences of the MOOCs that we already observe (www.openuped.eu).

7 Management from Kaunas University of Technology was given twice with intensive studies for 6 weeks. More than 1000 people from more than 40 different countries applied for this course. However just around 100 were active and just around 30 finished the course successfully and got certificates. These numbers shows popularity and necessity of similar courses.

8 MATERIAL IN DISTANCE LEARNING COURSE: Printed materials. Sound learning materials. Visual learning materials. Video lecture-classroom/ conference Animation. Animation in computer is described as making visual effects by using graphic and audio devices. E-book.

9 SURVEY 1 Trying to find out my Management students needs I asked them about means of Moodle they would like to have (Fall of 2014). 5 point scale was used for evaluation and calculated statistical means were used for this analysis also. 32 from 41 students took part in the survey. Age average of respondents was 21 year. 59 percent (19 students) of respondents were boys. 6 students are Indians, 4 - Lebanese, 4 French, 3 Lithuanians, 3- Latvians, 2 - Turks, 2 Russians, 2- Spanish, and per 1 student from Germany, Italy, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Equator.

10 STUDENTS OPINION ABOUT NECESSITY OF MATERIAL PROVIDED IN MOODLE Self assessment tasks and tests 3.56 Just study material as textbooks, slides, without any video lectures Online video lectures (in real time) Recorded video lectures 3.88

11 STUDY 2 5 point scale was used for evaluation. Calculated statistical means were used for the analysis of data. The 1 st survey was provided in April May of 2011, the 2 nd one in November December of underground university students (78.4% females) participated in the 1st poll and 101 (79.6% females) in the 2 nd poll. All students were studying Economics, Management and Finance in Lithuania.

12 REASONS OF COMPUTER USAGE IN PERCENT Reason of computer usage , Skype, etc. for communication Information sourcing Socialization (Facebook, MySpace etc.) For studies For work For entertainment For electronic services (ebanking, shopping etc.)

13 SOCIAL MEDIA WHAT ARE EXAMPLES OF SOCIAL MEDIA? Social media have been integrated into the daily practices of many users, supported by different websites, tools, and networks. Everyone can add or edit information on social media, supported by digital tools enabling you to create, change, and publish dynamic content.
